Tea Party Straw Poll Results

The Arkansas Tea Party conducted a straw poll April 15th for the U.S. Senate and U.S. House races. I am proud to announce that voters overwhelmingly supported the agenda that I presented by giving me 81 percent of the total vote (complete results are listed below).

There is indeed a growing sentiment that we can no longer ignore our nation’s mounting fiscal crisis, which is $56.5 trillion and growing by roughly $3 trillion each year. With interest on the national debt soon to be the largest single line item in the entire federal budget, we CANNOT afford to put this off any longer.

I appreciate everyone who gave me his or her vote of confidence. I am excited about the gathering momentum that will enable me to join the band of reformers who will be sent to change Washington in November.

    Rick, truth be told, there are only two safe choices…you, or leave the seat unfilled…I want someone who will represent Arkansas with passion and purpose and on EVERY issue and not tow ANY party lines…elected officials work for the people not the party. The people elect the party too…I believe you understand that. You have my vote…always have.

    Looking forward to the victory party on Tuesday night! We’ll probably turn in early if the Tea Party Straw Poll Vote is any indicator.
